Waiting Patiently . . .


Or at least I am trying to. I've been an Orla Kiely fan ever since I first discovered her work while I was studying design at Drake and I've been trying to wait patiently for her newest line of housewares to release—but that's not going so well. I've been stalking the Heal's and Bliss Home sites for a couple of weeks now to find out exactly what the line will encompass so I can get my wish list made and then, inevitably, narrowed down—because I just can't get it all (as much as I'd like to). I just about died when I saw the preview of the new stuff over at Print & Pattern back in July and have been spotting little previews here and there ever since.  That certainly doesn't help.  Unfortunately, these wares aren't set to release in the U.S. and Heal's, at least, doesn't ship internationally. Good thing a new friend just moved to the UK and will hopefully help me out I'm sneaky and will find a way to order and get these items into my home one way or another . . .





I'm crushing on the stoneware canisters and bakeware. I could also use a few of those mugs to spruce things up in the kitchen and office. Wouldn't that afternoon tea or coffee be tons more delish in one of those? Oh, and how about a welcome mat? Yeah, I think I could stand to step on that every day when I get home. 

Love, love, love! Now, don't I have a birthday coming up? Hint, hint, honey.

You my friend are an enabler, that's what you are! I'm gonna stitch capital E's on all your shirts! Okay well maybe not, but...well...

Just kidding...all good stuff. I really like that top pictures; it looks delicious all together.

I have a birthday coming up too...I'm really gonna freak out if we have the same birthday!

Tell us (or me) when the are available, K? Because I need to get some too. I love it!

Rachel: Haha, I sure will! I just love it all and if I can't find a source that will ship internationally, I may have to call on a friend in Henley, UK to order it and ship it here. If that's the case, I'll see if you need anything first. :)

Mary: So glad to tempt you with something else. That's about how I felt when I saw your Pyrex post. :)
